Dirt & Grit Colour Kit Bundle
- Full Kit
- Step by Step Guide
Add some dirt to your tracks with three unique and classic distortions.
Sometimes a little distortion is the perfect tool for making an element really cut through a mix. The Dirt & Grit Colour Bundle puts our three most aggressive distortion Colours at your fingertips during mixing.
The bundle contains:
Colour 500-Series Palette mkII Kit
Take complete control over the amount of distortion from each Colour with the Colour Palette mkII's individual stepped controls
JFT Class A Transistor Colour mkII
The classic sound of a discrete, NOS transistor being driven to its limits
Colourupter Optical Disrupter Colour
A unique take on optical compression yields soft, musical distortion
Distortastudio Cassette 4-Track Colour
The deliciously dirty sound of 80's solid state amplifiers being overdriven
Really great sounding units. Super fun to build! Easy to follow instructions.
I'm gonna have so fun with this platform I can tell.
Anything that creates an opportunity for cross compatible formats in audio I think is a winner. The API 500 format initially did amazing things for the professional audio industry, and being able to swap in and out different modules into your modules is the next evolution of that. This really bridges the gap between the DIY world and the pro audio world and allows people who maybe wouldn't otherwise of been able to get into hardware really get the best of all worlds imho.
I'm already thinking of ways I can mix and match modules in creative ways, and what order to use them in etc.
The assembly and soldering is going well. I am just a bit cheesed that a better
sale was started, could have saved a $100 and spent it on more modules.
will update when complete
Easy to build, easy instructions. Great price, great sound! Can't wait to buy more modules for it.
PALETTE great mechanical electronic design, everything fits perfectly.
Colourupter Optical has a lot of effect, I recommend putting R6: 3.9K Ohms sounds more balanced.
